SUBMISSIONS CLOSE for our 2019 FESTIVAL on December 31.

Hot off the press! We are delighted to announce a new edition of our Traveling Ethnografilm program, 27 September 2019, to be located in the UN Buffer Zone in Cyprus! The venue is to be the Home for Cooperation (H4C).

If you want to get a sense of what we are like before you submit, download the full program for the 5th festival in Paris, France at Ethnografilm 2018

Note to Filmmakers–we would love to see your films from anywhere on  Planet Earth, not just premodern societies and far-away places. If you have both “feature” and “broadcast” (under one hour) length, please submit the broadcast version for a higher likelihood of acceptance.

Eligibility for 2019: All non-fiction films (films with release date after Jan. 2013)

What is the Ethnografilm festival?  An interview with the Director during the 2016 festival.

By tradition, our last film is always the projectionist’s choice!

News! Ethnografilm has established a new site in the new world at the New Orleans Jazz Museum! In October 2017 the first annual Ethnografilm New Orleans was held.

After the last session of Ethnografilm over 40 directors retired to the nearby Autour du Moulin to continue the discussion!
